How Often Should I Update My LinkedIn Profile Photo?
Why are professional LinkedIn photos so important?
You create and maintain your LinkedIn profile because you want to be seen and make meaningful connections. First, you can’t be seen without a photo. Profiles with photos are up to 14 times more likely to be viewed than profiles without photos. And a high-quality photo is the easiest first step to making meaningful connections. It’s not just about how you look - appropriate photos give your profile credibility, professionalism, recognition and personal branding. James Caan, author of Get The Job You Really Want, said in a recent LinkedIn post : “A complete LinkedIn profile speaks volumes about the person’s level of professionalism.” You can’t have a complete profile without a high-quality photo.

How often should I change my LinkedIn profile photo?
If nothing else changes, update your profile photo at least twice a year. Let people know that you keep your LinkedIn profile up to date and that you value the currency of information you share. With professional photo sessions available from $55 p/p for groups of 16 or more and from $199 for individuals, it’s a small investment to make in your overall professional image.
